Combined phaco, CLASS procedure reduces IOP in patients with open-angle glaucoma

September 17, 2014

LONDON — CO₂ laser-assisted sclerectomy in combination with cataract surgery demonstrated efficacy in lowering IOP among patients with open-angle glaucoma, according to a surgeon here.

After cutting a rectangular sclera flap in the superior quadrant, 60% into the scleral depth, phacoemulsification was performed through a temporal clear corneal route. Laser ablation was then applied under the flap until opening of the Schlemm’s canal. The flap was then loosely sutured.
